Just got my email about this. Seeing that this is a GC, I wouldn't be surprised if the 2 new suits in the leaked images won't also be GC along with the Riptide when the new codex comes.http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-US/Tau-KX139-Ta'unar-Supremacy-Armour
Up for pre-order, WITH FULL RULES.
It's a GC, not a Titan, btw.
I've been scouring the rulebook trying to figure out what you're getting at. I see nothing that says ordnance weapons don't reduce scatter by the BS of the firer.The only thing that I can see (I have a habit of devil's advocating) that might be less powerful is that it's ordinance. No direct fire, which means a chance of scatter.
Erm, it's a 7" blast.Probably just me not being very clear.
You still have a chance of 8" of drift by firing ordinance. No direct fire, as in no lazer pew pew right at a target with roll to hit. It's a big pie plate, so you're gonna hurt people, but it's not as efficient at saying 'THAT TARGET MUST DIE' as a wraithknight with its guns.
